    Hi there,

    Pulled the following from the shareware VCDS (I'm outside glasgow if you have a full version I could use):

    01371 - Shareware Version. To Decode all DTCs
    35-00 - Please Register/Activate
    01374 - Shareware Version. To Decode all DTCs
    35-00 - Please Register/Activate
    01370 - Alarm triggered by Interior Monitoring
    35-00 - -

    These look to me like the drivers side door contact switch is faulty. Anyone know exactly what these are and what I need to replace to fix it.

    I also pulled these out too:

    VCDS doesn't normally show an error if the door contact is faulty. That error suggests that your alarm has been set off by one of the interior sensors.

    The tell tale signs of the door contact are the interior lights not switching off when the door is closed and the DIS showing that the door is open when it isn't.

    With the full version of VCDS you can see the output of the door/boot/bonnet switches. "0" means the door is open and "1" means the door is closed. This is another way to check if the switches are ok.

    The error regarding the possible leaky pump is very common on these cars. I have a reconditioned central locking pump and mine still throws up that error sometime. As long as the central locking is still working I wouldn't worry too much.

    Hmmm, I'd had my battery go on me about a month ago. Initially I had it charged up and then it went again and I had it replaced. Perhaps I'd used the key to open the door rather than the central locking then ?

    Worthwhile clearing the fault codes out and seeing if they re-occur ?

    Yeah clear them and keep an eye on them. Those 2 exact same codes come up on mine from time to time but I've had no issues from them. Have you checked your interior lights are going off when you close the doors? Maybe that's been draining your battery?

    Think the lights are ok. Battery was definately just screwed. Was original 8 year old battery, RAC measured it and it was only capable of holding under it's normal charge. It was the -12 we had over xmas the finally did it in.
